ALPINE, N.J. - Hip-hop star and entrepreneur Sean "P. Diddy" Combs has purchased a 21-room Bergen County mansion for more than $10 million, a publicist for the seller told The Associated Press.
Combs bought the 17,000-square-foot home from financier Mark Arzoomanian. The brick colonial home is set on 3.5 acres with a gated, tree-lined driveway that winds to a circular courtyard.
The Alpine house has three bedroom suites with sitting rooms, five additional bedrooms with private baths and a six-car garage. It also has an outdoor pool with a waterfall and separate spa; a movie theater; tennis, racquetball and basketball courts; a wine cellar, and a 700-gallon aquarium.
The sale was reported Friday.
Arzoomanian is chairman of two firms: Airtite Inc., a company that makes golf products, and Black & White Solutions, an information technology staffing organization.
Combs has recently starred in the Broadway revival of "Raisin in the Sun" and was named menswear designer of the year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America for his Sean John clothing line.
